song of the day.

I have been waiting a long-ass time for new music from Hozier. Finally… I got some. A four-song EP. That’s it… we get four songs. He’s killing me. But they are good.

[Irrelevant note: in the cover pic, he looks evil. And kind of like he has vampire fangs.]

Shrike | Hozier

I couldn’t utter my love when it counted
Ah, but I’m singing like a bird, ’bout it now
And I couldn’t whisper when you needed it shouted
Ah, but I’m singing like a bird, ’bout it now

Words hung above
But never would form
Like a cry at the final breath that is drawn
Remember me love, when I’m reborn
As a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

[partial lyrics]

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  3. I know you like him, and I’m not dissing anyone’s musical taste. But, I just have never beeninto him. That said, I liked this song. I need to hear the other 3.

    • I don’t expect everyone to love every song I post. And yeah, Hozier is not for everyone. Hell, nobody is for everyone. There’s a lot of music I hate but I usually don’t say so. Unless it’s some shit my daughter is making me listen to in the car. Then she knows when I think it’s crap. [Although… I’m horrified to admit that there is a pop act that I actually really like right now. Please don’t hate me. And no, I’m not telling who!]

    I find him to be very interesting. I liked “Take me to church” a lot. Looks like he’s toning down the ultra produced sound of that song a bit.

    Finally is right! I hope he’s got more than just four songs in the pipeline! This is a good one. I actually liked his bluesier stuff from the first album and so this sounds like a great start!
